I think Lalonde being far and away the highest scorer of the pre-merger era has a lot to do with his standing.

From the Hockey Compendium:

Top 20 Scorers, 1909-1926
  GPGAP
1Newsey Lalonde ('10-26>)296362*81443
2Joe Malone ('09-24)27334358401
3Cy Denneny ('15-26>)25925882340
4Frank Nighbor ('13-26>)28723896334
5Frank Foyston ('13-26>)29722372295
6Cyclone Taylor ('09-23)169189104*293
7Mickey MacKay ('15-26>)24719892290

10% lead on Malone and 30% on Denneny. Denneny only added 29 points after 1926. Nighbor added 32, and MacKay added 63 to also remain on the 1940 leader board.

His 362 goals wasn't passed until Richard did it in 54-55.

As I said in the HOH Top 100 project where do you rank a Ted Lindsay with 5 goal scoring titles?
